SANS Online Training and Certification
Online Training from SANS Institute is a flexible and effective option for information security professionals of all experience levels to complete SANS' top training from any location. Training credits may be purchased through the SANS partnership for our two most popular online training formats: OnDemand (self-paced E-learning) and vLive (live, virtual classroom). Each offers slightly different features so that students can choose the workflow, interaction and speed of training that they prefer.
OnDemand is a custom E-learning training system that provides four months of access to a SANS course via online courseware. Choose from our library of over 30 OnDemand courses that include; video based training, hands-on labs, quizzes for topic reinforcement, and MP3s of lectures by SANS' top instructors. OnDemand courses also include support by SANS Subject-Matter Experts and powerful search features. See www.sans.org/ondemand/courses for a complete list of available courses.
vLive is a live, online training option that provides interactive, virtual classroom sessions. Classes typically meet two evenings per week for five or six weeks. This training format also provides six-months of access to an archived version of your course. SANS standard courseware and hands-on lab exercises are included to reinforce the skills learned. A list of currently scheduled vLive courses may be found at www.sans.org/vlive/sessions
Qualified Organizations* can save up to 55% on Online training when they purchase training credits through the SANS / CIS partnership Aggregate Buy (cooperative purchase) program. The next purchase window will be open from Jun 1, 2015 - Jul 31, 2015
Securing The Human
SANS also recognizes that non-technical individuals need training on awareness and compliance if information security is to be achieved across an entire organization. Securing The Human goes beyond compliance and focuses on changing human behavior to offer a complete security awareness solution. Though the SANS partnership, qualified organizations* can save up to 75% on several key Securing The Human products:
- STH.EndUser - Comprehensive Security Awareness based on the 20 Critical Security Controls
- STH.Utility - Addresses NERC CIP Reliability Standards required by the Utility industry.
- STH.Developer - Train web developers on the OWASP Top 10 Web Vulnerabilities and SDLC
- STH.Phishing - Test your employees by executing your own phishing campaigns in a manner consistent with what real criminals are doing.
All Securing The Human training is SCORM and 508 compliant and can be supplemented with the purchase of additional Support Materials to reinforce information learned.
